Gamers Engaged With Food Lifeline

On Sunday August 9th, 2020, Calliope Games is participating in an incredible event with Gamers Engaged, the giving arm of Card Kingdom and Mox Boarding House, where we will be streaming and playing games from 10am-10pm PST to raise money for Food Lifeline.

Food Lifeline provides the equivalent of 134,000 meals every day, and every dollar we raise provides 5 meals. Our team goal was to raise $1,000, and thanks to your generosity we have already smashed that goal!! Along with an incredible donation was a challenge: “$1000 as a goal is too low. Aim high! We love each other!” So we’ve DOUBLED our goal! Now we want to raise $2,000, or 10,000 meals for Food Lifeline.

All throughout the day we will be playing your favorite Calliope games in a multitude of ways; from Zoom calls to good ol’ fashioned round-the-table gameplay. We are also thrilled to announce that Ruel Gaviola (whom you may remember from the Accommodations for Colorblind Players article) will be playing ShipShape with his family as our special guest. There also may be a super secret playthrough of an upcoming Calliope game that hasn’t even hit Kickstarter yet! If you want to know when it’s live, make sure you’re following us on social media, or sign up for the Kickstarter Preview newsletter in our sidebar –>

And just to sweeten the pot, every person who follows us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), signs up for that Kickstarter newsletter, or donates, is entered in a raffle to win some con-exclusive Calliope swag! We want to give our thanks to you all for joining us for this incredible event. We literally cannot do it without you.

We hope you’ll join us on Sunday, and that you’ll watch, comment, share, enjoy, and if your wallets can afford it, that you give back and make a donation. Remember, $1 provides 5 meals, so truly every little bit helps.

Stay Safe. Stay Kind. Play Games.

Adventure Awaits You On The Dicey Peaks!

Hi everyone!

We are proud to announce the launch of the Kickstarter campaign for our newest game Dicey Peaks!  Created by superstar game designer Scott Almes, Dicey Peaks is a thrilling tile-flipping, dice-rolling game for 2-6 players!

In the game, you are attempting to be the first to reach the fabled red flag at the top of Yeti Mountain.  To get there, you have to push your luck rolling dice and skillfully choosing when to press ahead, and when to rest to regain some precious oxygen.  As you advance, you reveal tiles that can help or hinder your progress.  Most dangerous of all are the hazards – avalanches and Yetis that can cause you to bust if you press your luck a bit too far!

We are beyond excited to have worked with Scott Almes on his first Calliope Game, bringing this quick-playing heart-pounding adventure to life!  We want this game to be the best possible presentation, so we have partnered again with crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to open it up to amazing backers whose pledges allow us to improve the components and build an immediate interest in the game.

Here is a quick “peak” at the components currently slated to be in the box (and which we can hopefully upgrade even further after shattering goals on Kickstarter):

The components in Dicey Peaks

We sincerely hope you will take a look at the Kickstarter campaign for Dicey Peaks and consider pledging to get a copy.  There is a standard edition for only $26 (including free shipping within the continental U.S.) or a deluxe edition – featuring an exclusive linen-finish box cover, a book of art from the game, and a Yeti standee – for only $36 (again, with free shipping within the continental U.S.).

Have a great day, and watch out for Yetis!
